Beta needed: SGA fic "Relationship"  
Anybody out there up for a beta job? This one may be problematic, and I may have to head over to the beta-search comms: It's got major content/spoiler warnings (possible trigger stuff), and it's not a nice story. I (think I) didn't bash any characters or pairings, but any McKay/Keller OTPers would probably not enjoy it. It's set at the end of season five and it's only 8.7k words, which is practically a drabble coming from me. SPaG is always appreciated, but as far as I know that's all fine; I'm primarily looking for voice, structure, characterization, bashing-avoidance, and general/overall feedback.

I've put the spoiler-content warnings below, within both LJ-cut and spoiler bars, if anyone's tempted but needs to be sure of what they're getting into first.

Warning content category: (skip) Sexual taboos
Warning content level: (skip) Implied; averted/ended
Specific content warning: (skip) Inadvertent potential incest
Summary: An unexpected report changes everything.

I would, but I'm over here dying from pinch hit revision stress, and you don't want me hyperventilating on your nice new holiday shoulder.

The following post is old, but the writers volunteering to beta are all in your fandom. If they're not available themselves, perhaps they can make a good recommendation:

Thanks regardless! Good luck with your pinch-hit!

I like sga_beta, one of the comms mentioned there, but I figured to start here first. I'm not under deadline (I'm too much of a wimp for 'em), so can't hurt, right? :>

I'd be happy to take a look. When do you need it back?

That would be lovely; thank you! I don't have a deadline on this one; I'm a free-former. (Because I can never meet deadlines. Hee.) So whenever is fine; I'm just happy to have one WIP off my list.

I can send it along in a few hours — if you have an email address you can share (here, by PM, or by email to my user @livejournal.com), I can send you my MSWord document; or I can post a locked entry; or I can ... use some other format if you have a preference. Again, thank you!

My pleasure. You can send it to trystings at gmail.com. I should have plenty time in the next few days.
